About the Records
Prior to taking statewide office, newly elected officials, judges, appointed commission members and agency directors, and special law enforcement officers in Utah are required to take an oath of office from any person in the state authorized to administer oaths (UCA 78-24-16). Officeholders each solemnly swear (or affirm) to support, obey, and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Utah State Constitution, and to discharge the duties of the office with fidelity.
See the full description of these records.
There is no specific time frame as to when an oath should be filed with the State Archives, which may affect whether an oath is available.
